New Guidance Helps Schools Support Students with Disabilities and Avoid Discriminatory Use of Discipline

On July 19, 2022, the Department of Education issued updated guidance on the discipline of students with disabilities.  Specifically, the update provides schools with a clear and comprehensive approach to avoid discriminatory practices and make use of American Rescue Plan funds to ensure students with disabilities receive social-emotional and/or behavioral supports and services as documented in their respective IEPs and Section 504 Plans.  Examples of missteps by schools are included in the summary in addition to links and resources.  There is also a glossary of special education terminology for neurodivergent learners that we hope you will find useful.  [Heidi Goger, AFT Educational Issues]
